    In the end, By the Hedge is the work of a band trying to discover itself: Maybe Minks aren't quite sure who they are or where they're going yet, but at least their solid first effort suggests there's more than enough reason to keep following them to find out what'll happen with them.

    The urbane vibe exuded during their stellar live shows is stunning. Unfortunately they don't completely lasso that divine alchemy here. [Feb 2011, p.73]

    Luckily, the songwriting on Minks' debut hits far more frequently than it misses. It's a solid establishment of a noteworthy sound--the proverbial "encouraging first album."
